Mastering the Art of Astrology: Classic Techniques
Tues Jan 15th 6:00 – 8:00 pm $30 Thomas Sidebottom
Delve into the mysteries of astrology in 2019! Mastering the Art of Astrology is a year-long course that will begin by teaching how to read your chart. As the series progresses, learn how to read other people’s charts, how to compare charts, and even do some forecasting! The charts help you understand what makes you unique, and how you relate to others. Class will meet one Tuesday evening per month.
Unlocking the Toolkit: The first three classes will focus on classic techniques. In January, learn the basics of astrological symbols using your own chart. We’ll discuss elements and qualities: the fundamental building blocks to understand the meaning of the signs. You’ll receive a customized packet containing your own chart and simplified scoreboards that we’ll examine together in the group. We’ll look at how the elements and the qualities work in your own chart. Learn about the planets, Luminaries, meanings of the houses, the Ascendant and Midheaven.
Required data: To prepare your customized packet with your chart you’ll provide us your birth date, place, and time when you register for the seminar.
